One ton Jeep XJ jumps into tree, doesn’t break!

Bruce Wiles, the original owner and builder of this awesome XJ on one ton axles, takes it for a rough ride up the speed bounty hill at Dirty Turtle Offroad Park in Bedford, Kentucky. The first two attempts are unsuccessful as you can see a good size ledge at the bottom of the hill causes his front wheels to become airborne and not able to steer. The jeep bounces into a pretty good size tree and the Jeep seems to take the hit without damage. A well built rig and good exo-cage allow him a third attempt in which he makes it to the top! The low quality iphone video doesn’t do this monster hill justice but it’s certainly still entertaining to watch.
